Jan 24, 2018BioSafe Systems introduces broad-spectrum bactericide/fungicide
SaniDate 15.0 from BioSafe Systems has received a label enhancement for the treatment of process water used in the packing of raw commodities, such as specialty fruits and vegetables. SaniDate 15.0’s label is now EPA approved to inhibit salmonella, E. coli and listeria in packing house wash-water applications, providing packers with a new treatment option for human health and spoilage organisms.
BioSafe Systems said the bactericide/fungicide was formulated specifically to address the unique needs and challenges found in vegetable and fruit water treatment applications, including the recent changes outlined in the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA). SaniDate 15.0’s concentrated 15 per peroxyacetic acid (PAA) formulation utilizes a proprietary package of stabilizing agents to provide packers with a water treatment solution that the company said it is effective against human health pathogens in the water, and also inhibits spoilage organisms that reduce produce shelf-life and quality.
BioSafe Systems has also introduced a unique dosing and monitoring system, the SaniDate MDS, which provides packers with automated data logging technology, designed to ensure accurate dosing of all BioSafe Systems’ SaniDate products.
